Lakefront cabin with kitchen and patio
Deep Water Cabin

Our calendar is updated in real-time & our nightly rates are accurately displayed. Simply enter your desired dates and click 'Book Now!'

Deepwater Cabin is a solid timber framed structure built into the mountain side on the edge of the National Forest in a true, remote wilderness area. It is one of the very last waterfront dwellings up-lake, to the Northwest, that is still accessible by car. The cabin's grass- and fern-covered sod roof blends into the vegetation of its perch on a rocky point surrounded by sparkling blue Lake Chelan waters.

The location on a point gives expansive views up, down and across the lake. Deepwater is half an hours’ drive from Chelan, far from any town lights, so one can see countless brilliant stars on a typical clear night. Watch shooting stars under the Milky Way. In the day you will watch flocks of swallows swoop through the air catching insects, and osprey flying by, patrolling the shore for fish.

To access the lake, a steep trail switches back through rocky terraces down to a solid, newly built stairway and dock. At the clear, deep waters edge, swimmers can launch into the refreshing blue depths.

Boaters will have access to explore miles and miles of wilderness shoreline with a kayak, canoe or paddle board. Be aware that the lake access at Deepwater is very steep, so launching may be easier at the nearby 25 Mile State Park, a short paddle to the South.

Inside, the cabin is classic, simple, and cozy, with big sunny windows and two double patio doors. The two wings provide a sleeping space and a living/dining area, with the bath and kitchen in between. The bathroom has a new washing machine and a shower with plenty of pressure; pure water pumped straight from Lake Chelan! There is a drying rack for your wet laundry, which solar drys quickly on a typical sunny blue sky day.

The compact kitchen offers all major appliances offering all you need for great foodie meals, and the sunny, open patio is wonderful for reading, having meals and enjoying time together and an amazing place to chillax. A small gas grill awaits your steaks or brats, or the beautiful trout the fisher-persons in the party may bring up from the lake, where the big fish swim by the dock, hungry for worms.

A very comfortable queen-size log bed will accommodate two, while the living/dining area features a brand new fold-out full-size sofabed and an older long sofa for lounging and sleeping, accommodating one or two extra persons. The cabin is most appropriate for a couple or small family, it can sleep up to four; ideally, family or close friends since there is little privacy here! It's best to bring your own sleeping bags for any more than two, since the linens provided are for the queen bed only.

Please note: Deepwater is located on steep topography, not appropriate for unsupervised small children, but an extraordinary get away for adventurers and outdoor lovers ~ those who enjoy wilderness, silence, and simplicity. Be aware there is no internet available at this location, but there is a land line phone for emergency calls. Rattlesnakes, lynx, and mountain lions have been seen in the area, but are shy and eager to avoid people. Wild turkey and herds of deer are common. Beware the deer when driving South Lake Shore Road.

The historic, scenic South Lake Shore Trail built in the 40s by the CCC parallels the lake shore and begins just a short walk away. Larger boats can be launched at Twenty-Five Mile Creek State Park, which is less than a mile from the cabin. Miles of Forest Service logging roads meander the hills just behind the property, providing access to National Forest lands for mountain bikers to explore the unparalleled wilderness beauty above the lake.

The town of Chelan has good restaurants, fun shops, a great health food store, and plenty of local wine tasting. The region has many wineries and vineyards, so you may want to take a day to sample the local fare.

One day of your visit can be spent on the Lady of The Lake, the local ferry, going up-lake to the remote community of Stehekin, which has a great bakery and access to amazing hikes in the North Cascades National Park. Another day trip nearby could be to Holden Village, a Lutheran Camp 12 miles up into the mountains, which also can be reached on The Lady of the Lake ferry. This is a playful, festive intentional community which is open to guests and provides meals and full accommodations in a village that was once a thriving copper mine.

Deep Water Cabin is an ideal setting to explore and play in the water and mountains, relax and refresh, and soak in the bright sunny skies and the vast deep blue beauty of the lake. Come enjoy a getaway in gorgeous Lake Chelan!

Birthday celebration.
The paved road ended at a forest service residence. We had to turn off of the paved road onto a gravel and dirt road with a different name than what was listed on the directions, it was very confusing. We spoke to a neighbor near the cabin who explained that the addresses had changed recently, so that explained the situation. I texted the contact I had through the booking prior to our departure and specifically asked about the paved road, as we were traveling by motorcycle, and they assured me that the road was paved to the cabin. After the initial confusion we got settled in and had a wonderful time. The cleanliness was not what we expected but made due, as we understand, the remoteness may cause difficulties. Overall we would recommend this cabin to others who are looking for beautiful view and the remote experience.

Perfect Getaway
Highly recommended for those who want to take a break from the city and experience the 70s life (no cell and TV). This cabin is in a very quiet and secluded part of Lake Chelan. Just 25 minutes from Chelan, WA where you can get your supply from Walmart Supercenter or Safeway. It has a fully functional kitchen; all you need to bring is your grocery. Bathroom is nice and clean and has towels provided for. You can fish, swim and kayak in the lake below the cabin.

Amazing Location, Cute Cabin
Loved the time away--much needed! The cabin was unique and on bluff above water--beautiful view of the lake! Bring binoculars! The location provided isolation and privacy. Probably not a great place for kids due to drop off to lake and challenging path down to swim dock. Disappointed in cleanliness of cabin and property--something to take more seriously during this Covid Year. Did have my own disinfectant wipes which I had to use on kitchen immediately. If you are a 'real' cook, which my husband is, consider bringing your favorite pans/utensils. Although kitchen is well-stocked, things are of poor quality and old. The cupboard is a little creepy as lots of leftover dry goods from previous guests. All said, we had a very restful 4 nights there!

place to unplug
We had a wonderful time at this quaint little cabin. It was clean and simple. The dock is a great place to hang out. We fished down there and caught over 10 fish, mainly lake trout using hot dogs. Yes... hot dogs. The location is very private and quite. We loved this place.
